Whats up with the Sahara model??

I was looking at some fender flares and noticed that some of them are not recommended for a Sahara. Why is that? I thought that the Sahara model just had different extras then the Sport.

Amy's old Sahara had a different center piece between the wheel wells in the step area, The wheel flares were molded to fit that piece.
I haven't noticed if her new one is like that or not.

So if you removed that piece and added rockers then it shouldn't matter. Thanks Skeeter.
